    Cooking

    As part of our youth club programme at Bromley and Downham we run cooking sessions. These sessions are open to every young person and our aim is to help young people to learn new skills, promote healthy eating choices and to encourage young people to learn independent lifelong skills including planning, budgeting, health and hygiene.

    Indoor Sports

    We have a large indoor sports hall and outside area for sports of all kinds at Bromley and Downham. Young people can take part in a variety of sporting activities such as football, skating, basketball, hockey, badminton, tennis and much, much more. These sessions provide a high-quality experience for young people; this promotes a healthy and active lifestyle, with experienced coaches and highly qualified staff creating an atmosphere of fun and social inclusion for young people to develop and make new friends.

    Holiday Activities

    When school closes, the fun begins at Bromley and Downham Youth Club. We provide a wide variety of fun activities and there is something for everyone.

    Throughout the holidays, to name just a few of those activities that take place in Bromley and Downham are arts and crafts, cooking sessions, football coaching and multisports, basketball and many other team games.

    DAY TRIPS AND RESIDENTIAL TRIPS

    All of these activities are run by a fully-qualified youth work team. Parents can be confident that their young people are in a safe and caring environment. All activities aim to develop social, physical and emotional well-being and most of all to ensure that all the young people who come to Bromley and Downham have fun.

    We are always looking for new members to join us.

    We offer a safe environment for your children to have some fun and meet new friends, whilst being looked after by our qualified Youth Workers

    Comments from Young People

    “I come to the youth club to see my friend. We like the art room because we can do lots of different things in there, like painting and making things to take home.”

    “I went on last year’s residential trip. It was so good, it was the first time I had stayed away from home. I got to take part in lots of things that I would never get the chance to do if I didn’t go away with the youth club. I want to go again next time.”

    “I love it when we cook. I take what I have made home to show my mum and she tastes it. She says I’m getting better.”

    “I went away with Bromley and Downham Youth Club last summer in the school holidays. I don’t do a lot of things outdoors, I’m not really that kind of person, but I thought I would like to try something new. I ended up abseiling from the top of a very high tree and then having a go on Jacob’s Ladder, which is very high. I toasted marshmallows around a campfire. Imagine that.”

    “One of the best things I like to do at the youth club is come on movie night. We watch movies and have popcorn and drinks.”

    Comments from Parents

    “Great youth club, my kids love it and they go as many times as they can in the week. One of my children has learned to skate and the other one likes playing football.”
    “I have three children who go boxing. When they’ve finished boxing they join in with the other activities going on. They’ve all made new friends, they think the youth workers are great and I am more than happy to leave them in the club knowing that they’re well cared for. I tell the other parents at their schools about Bromley and Downham.”
    “Thank you to all the staff that have made the summer holidays such fun for my children. They have had a great time and will now be joining the youth club and attending regularly. The friendly and fun atmosphere at this club makes them want to come back.”
    “I would like to thank the staff at Bromley and Downham for the way they have cared for my son on Wednesday evenings. He really looks forward to coming along to the sessions on Wednesday and I, as a parent of a child with additional needs, feel peace of mind when leaving him there because of the great care and compassion of the staff working with the children on a Wednesday evening.”
